All-time great “Saturday Night Live” Halloween-themed sketches could feasibly begin and end with the recent Tom Hanks-starring David S. Pumpkins sketch — he’s his own thing! — but with more than forty seasons under their collective belt, the venerable NBC sketch comedy show has a few other classics to show off, too.
In celebration of the spooky holiday, the show has put together some of their Halloween-themed favorites under the banner of an “SNL Celebrates Halloween” montage, one that includes such classic characters as Vincent Price, Matt Foley, Drunk Uncle and many, many more. Garth and Kat are there in natty sweaters, Stefan provides some stellar trick and/or treating tips and even President Obama himself shows up for a shocking holiday twist.
There may not have been a “Saturday Night Live” this past weekend — turns out, they’ve got an election to gear up for — but this little slice of sweet goodness should happily tide over even the most hardcore “SNL” fans, even if it’s horrifyingly low on the Pumpkins.
Check out the montage below. It’s spooky!
“Saturday Night Live” is back this weekend, featuring “Doctor Strange” star Benedict Cumberbatch in his inaugural outing as host.
